Re: Election embarrassing. That letter was so far out in left field I must reply. First of all, Stephen Harper was the voters’ only sane choice in the last election, Intelligent voters understood that a majority was our best chance to get our government out of gridlock. Trying to get the populists in the West to agree with the self-serving federalists in Quebec was insane. Hopefully those days are over.
As for the charge of Harper being too far right, I wish. Handing more money to the trough sucking CBC is proof enough of his addiction to wasting money but he is the best of the lot on that score too. The Liberals robbed us blind for decades and the NDP — well, you said you were embarrassed by the way your fellow Canadians voted but have you taken a good look at the slate of NDP candidates? Now that’s embarrassing.
I was never more proud of an election result than this last one.
Voters turned a deaf ear to the media bias rammed down their throats and used their heads.
